Friday Fun Fact!

Today we're talking about beeswax!

This is one of my favorite essential sewing notions. Use beeswax when hand sewing to smooth your thread and generally make your life easier.

For hand sewing, cut one arm's length of thread, then drag the entire length of thread through the wax (going through the slot in the wax holder). Once is usually enough!

Then, scrape with your thumbnail 4-5 times to remove the chunks and embed the wax into the thread.

Finally, use a sharp scissor to make an angled cut at the end for easy needle-threading!  

It's also great for threading needles for machine sewing or even embroidery floss! For needle threading, just wax the very end, not the entire length. It's like licking it, but more effective and less gross!

Get yours here! It's a must-have in every sewing kit.
